(1) Noise: It is behind the train station. As long as midnight, the brake of trains was so loud with windows closed. (2) dirty: The air conditioner has to be turned on due to the noise from trains But the machine was full of dirts. (3) Room too small: It should remind travelers who carry luggages.
It was very good and the services provided was also great. Would like to come again and recommend to other friends as well..
Bathroom was a bit too conjusted / small in a 3 bed room.
Location was good. No trouble with train sound. The wi-fi worked. Cleanliness was good. Tea/Coffee making possible.
The toilet was very cramped.
Nearness to station and easy to get to town
Having to pay extra for breakfast - thought it was included in booked price. Didn't like the modernistic taps. A bit cramped in the breakfast dining room, but the under floor model railway interesting.
Asked for a double bed, ended up with 2 single beds.
real close to the train station
the cleaning lady tried to open my door （to clean）when i take a shower
Conveniently located near the train station and several restaurants. Laundromat was right across the street which was perfect for our stay.
Our room was in what would be a loft and was very very hot. The fans helped a bit, but this room definitely needed a strong air conditioner. I can only imagine in the summer months this would be a furnace.
The extreme noise from the trains I couldn't sleep
Just a few metres from the station entrance. A good range of eating places in the same street. Very comfortable hotel. Nice that there were croissants in the foyer, for tired travellers. The restaurant had a nice railway theme, with an operational model railway under the floor!
The hot and cold tap control in sink and shower were very fancy, and took some working out; not very good if you have arthritis. But the bathroom facilities were fine.
Convenient and perfect location whereby only few minutes from the Lausanne train station. This is good for my parent. Triple room is quite spacious but washroom bit small. Free Lausanne Transport card. Friendly and helpful staff. Hotel allows for luggage storage while waiting for the rooms to be ready by 3pm.
Small convenient hotel located just below the station. Old-style room but excellent small en-suite and teas-making facilities, which is very unusual in Switzerland!! Excellent value for money.
Three times cheaper than any comparable accommodation in Geneva.
It's rather basic with shared bathroom and toilet
Location, friendly staff, cleanliness
The special railway theme of the hotel and the excellent efficient , helpful staff.
I was content with everything
The staff was very helpful and friendly, the room was very clean.
I didn't like the fact that my room was next to the railways, and the train woke me up a few times. The room was pretty small, but somewhat big enough for my needs.
